    Each of us has experienced Eckhart's teachings in unique ways. How have these teachings affected your life? What experiences have led you toward awakening or away from unconsciousness. For this meeting, we will focus on these questions. Here is an 8 minute video which I believe captures the simplicity of Eckhart's teachings: The Deepest Truth of Human Existence (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uk_AO8Vgr0&list=PLF3B53C5DE62F5FD1) We will perform a brief meditation, perhaps watch a short video, then begin our discussion of this topic. Meetup has doubled their rates (yikes), so I must now charge a $10 fee to cover expenses. I generally have coffee, hot tea, and cold water available.

    Our topic this month is: THIS MOMENT That does sound a little odd, but consider "this moment" is where we actually live. It is where you are as you are reading this. It is where I am as I am writing this. Funny how we have to use little tricks to actually turn our attention to this moment: To meditate, or focus on sensory experiences, or attend to the feeling our "inner body". It is so easy (and natural) for us to "be" somewhere else - like the recent past, or the near future, or daydreaming of another place altogether. Although our entire life happens in the present moment, we are rarely here. Why does this moment often seem "uninteresting" or "unimportant", compared with "what just happened" or "where we need to be"? Whether you are familiar or not with Eckhart's work, you are quite welcome to attend our group. No reading is required. For reference, however, here are a few of Tolle's books with their Amazon links: The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle A New Earth – Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose, Eckhart Tolle (http://www.amazon.com/New-Earth-Awakening-Purpose-Selection/dp/0452289963/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1394514018&sr=1-1&keywords=a+new+earth+by+eckhart+tolle) Oneness with All Life, Eckhart Tolle (http://www.amazon.com/Oneness-All-Life-Inspirational-Selections/dp/0452296080/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1394514051&sr=1-1&keywords=oneness+with+all+life) Here is a 3-minute video which we will watch: http://youtu.be/82DXM4i0tdI Our general format is a brief meditation, watching a short video (or audio), brief personal introductions, then to begin discussion.

    Our topic this month will be: "Is Mastery of Life the Opposite of Control?" How can we expect life to be better without taking control, planning, setting goals and working towards them? Isn't taking control of one's life what we have been taught all our lives? Is this not our responsibility? Consider this deeply in preparation for our meeting. ...Well, you may if you like, but no preparation is ever necessary for our meetings. :-) Whether you are familiar or not with Eckhart's work, you are quite welcome to attend our group.

  • "Finding Life's Purpose" Workshop

    Executive Conference Room

    $25.00

    As life goes on, one can wonder: - What it is all for? - Am I on the right path? - Am I wasting the valuable time I have left? Finding purpose in life is not taught to us in schools. Rather, it is expected we will "figure it out on our own" as we get older. The truth is, one does not need to become a monk nor even adopt any particular beliefs to find answers to these important questions. In this workshop, you will discover that there is an easy path for discovering purpose and joy in everyday life. This workshop is based upon the teachings of Eckhart Tolle. He teaches that true purpose can only originate from within - and this is where we begin our exploration. You can expect some fun and eye-opening exercises, review of useful principles, three brief meditations, and group interactive exercises and discussion. Sign up now to reserve a spot. Bring a close friend if you want. - The cost is only $25 per person. - Healthy snacks/beverages provided. Whether you are familiar or not with Eckhart's work, you are quite welcome to attend this workshop. No reading is required.
